Donald Trump cited Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as an example of how US cyber-security can be compromised, during a speech on national defense Wednesday.
“In addition (to rebuilding the military), we will improve the Department of Defense’s cyber capabilities,” the GOP nominee said before an audience in Philadelphia. “Hillary Clinton has taught us all how vulnerable we are to cyber hacking.”
In regards to Clinton’s mismanagement of confidential State Department documents, Trump added that as president he would enforce rules regarding classification and handling of information.
“…One of the first things we must do is to enforce all classification rules, and enforce all laws relating to the handling of classified information.”
“Hillary Clinton put her emails on a secret server to cover-up her pay-for-play scandals at the State Department,” he said. “Nothing threatens the integrity of our Democracy more than when government officials put their public office up for sale.”
Elsewhere in his speech, Trump labeled Clinton’s foreign policy as “trigger-happy and unstable.”
“Sometimes it has seemed like there wasn’t a country in the Middle East that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to invade, intervene or topple. She is trigger-happy and unstable when it comes to war.”
